The Saint Martin’s University is offering a $1,000 scholarship opportunity to students who are seeking to undergo a degree program at the Institution through the International Outstanding Achievement Awards. SMU is committed to helping make education accessible and affordable to our international students.
Saint Martin’s patron saint is Saint Martin of Tours, a fourth-century monk and missionary, and later Bishop of Tours. The university and its founder, Saint Martin’s Abbey, sit on 300 acres (1.2 km2) of woodlands, trees, rocks, and meandering trails.
The site was selected in 1894 by Abbot Bernard Locnikar, O.S.B., of Saint John’s Abbey, Collegeville, Minnesota, which was the mother abbey of St. Martin’s Abbey. At a public auction on April 21, 1894, the wooded parcel that would become the Saint Martin’s campus was purchased for $6,920.
Work began on Saint Martin’s first building in January 1895, and by late summer, a four-story structure housing both the school and a monastery was completed. The school at that time offered preparatory classes for boys, plus commercial and classical education for older boys and young men. Boarding students who came from outside of town also were housed in the campus’ one large building. Today, that structure is referred to as Old Main and continues to house many of the university’s classrooms and offices.
